Pundi X, a point-of-sale (POS) solution provider based on blockchain to allow the physical store to conduct multi-cryptocurrency transactions, unveiled today a new branch of XPOS smart point-of-sale terminal, running exclusively on the NEM blockchain. This device will help both physical retailers and consumers to make fiat or cryptocurrency transactions faster and easier. Pundi X will supply 20,000 units of XPOS devices.
The new XPOS device will be connected to the blockchain via XPlugins, the Pundi X platform API that allows blockchain developers to connect to digital wallets and create smart contract requests. The device will provide faster transactions in physical stores.
Users will be able to conduct multiple NEM-based cryptocurrency transactions via XPOS point-of-sale terminals. The tokens confirmed to be listed on this new device are XEM, PXSXEM and XAR. There will be more XEM Mosaic tokens to list later.
